In this module, we will explore: - The power of contact; where and how. - Sharing the experiential field of the breather. - The intermittent nature of the process. - The challenge of doing not doing. - Understanding and supporting different kinds of processes. This module involves intense practice of facilitation with direct advice from experienced practitioners and shadow guidance to improve your presence and skills. To maximize your training, in the breathwork sessions sitters will facilitate breathers, and the staff will support you if needed. There will be space for dialogue, questions, and answers to discuss situations and gain confidence in your facilitation. To assist it is indispensable to have done the mandatory module The Power Within (“the Bodywork module”) to have experience as a breather/sitter and some facilitation skills.

Holotropic Breathwork® is a powerful technique for self-healing and self-exploration allowing for greater self-understanding, expansion of self-identity and access to the roots of emotional and psychosomatic challenges one might face. Holotropic Breathwork® comes from the Greek words ‘holos’ (whole) and ‘trepein’ (going to) meaning moving towards wholeness.
